10.03.2019… Aston Villa (h)…

Birmingham City 0 Aston Villa 1

St. Andrew’s… Sunday March 10th… 12pm

Attendance: 26,631

Ticket: £30  Programme: £3

A game that will unfortunately be remembered for all of the wrong reasons, Jack Grealish being punched from behind by a pitch invader early in the first half…

In truth, neither side deserved to win what was a very poor game but, ironically, it was Grealish who eventually broke the deadlock in the 67th minute. Conor Hourihane could, and maybe should have added a second but hit the bar…

Blues didn’t threaten until late, substitute Craig Gardner firing over the bar from close in and sending a powerful header just past the post…
